My HONK!!! If You Feel The Bern! Yard sign is complete!! UPDATE!!!

UPDATE: You may not have noticed but I did! I forgot to dot the "I" in Bernie with the star in the logo! Below is the updated version. I replaced the old version since it was incomplete.

Feel free to share this!

Also, do you want to print it in high resolution and put it out in your yard? Go here for an Extra Large High Res image of it:


Witness it's homemade, handpainted, political, Americana glory! I'm quite pleased with it!


Thanks everyone for your encouragement!

today is an important day for Bernie right?

I heard today is the day that he and other presidential hopefuls have to go to the DNC and appeal to the delegates to get endorsements from them.

is this true? what happens if he gets no endorsements? is all hope lost?

Anyone who preordered any Steam Hardware will get free copies of Rocket League and Portal 2!!!!

I already have Portal 2, but Rocket League!! Woo! I've been really keeping my eye on this one for a while but hesitant to buy!

I can't wait for my Steam Controller! And yes, this counts for those of us who have ALREADY preordered Steam Hardware before this was announced.

as a male feminist i have a question

how should I deal with sexism amongst coworkers?

the problem is, I'm the youngest employee of my company and my coworkers are mostly ex military men.

they're good guys, but the sexism that seems instilled in them slips out as a harmless joke every once and a while and I get offended.

I already reported one guy to HR because of some over ogling of a female coworker, followed by some tasteless commentary.

I feel my hands are tied now. I can't go reporting people to HR every time something happens and because of my age and non involvement with the military, I doubt my words are respected.

I am close with these guys, we've worked together for a while and I know they don't TRULY believe what they say. but still, to me it's as careless as making a lighthearted racist joke and prefacing it with "I'm not racist but..."

meh, I'm just venting. I'm sure it'll be fine.

Has an instrumental ever made you cry?

No lyrics, just pure instrumental music...

Has it ever made you cry? And if so, which piece?


... Don't laugh but...

Eruption by Van Halen.

Trump will not win.

So don't worry.

Trumps following is factually a vocal minority who's voice is being amplified the loudest right now.

The true majority is behind Bernie, and though they are just as loud they are being ignored.

We will not be ignored for long.

So again, don't worry.
